, and to their families. i know all americans share in that sentiment. for generations, the united states of america has played a unique role as an anchor of global security and as an advocate for human freedom. mindful of the risks and costs of military action, we are naturally reluctant to use force to solve the world's many challenges. but when our interests and values are at stake, we have a responsibility to act. that's what's happened in libya over the course of these last six weeks. libya sits directly between tunisia and egypt. two nations that inspired the world when their people rose up to take control of their own destiny. for more than four decades, the libyan people have been ruled by a tyrant, moammar qaddafi. he has denied his people freedom. exploited their wealth. murdered opponents at home and abroad and terrorized innocent people around the world. including americans who were killed by libyan agents. last month qaddafi's grip of fear appeared to give way to the promise of freedom. and cities and towns across the country, libyans took to the streets to claim their basic human rights. a
for generations, the united states of america has played a unique role in global security, and as an advocate for human freedom. mindful of the risks, costs of military actions we are reluctant to use force to solve world problems. one of our interest and values are at stake we have a responsibility to act on our interest--is at stake. that is what is happening in libya with the last couple of weeks. libya is between egypt and tunisia two different nations that have inspired the world when the people rose up to take control of their own destiny. for over four decades, the people have been ruled by a tyrant. moammar gaddafi has denied his people's freedom. exploited his wealth, murdered opponents at home and on a broad and terrorize innocent people of around the world including americans. there were killed by libyans. last month, the grip of fear gave way to the promise of freedom. cities, towns across the country libyans took to the street to claim their basic human rights. as one libyan said for the first time i only have hope that our nightmare of 40 years will soon be over. faced with this
operation odyssey door signal a major change in america's foreign policy in that region? tonight the great middle east debate for some of the top minds in the country, both sides of the aisle. senator lindsay graham, donald trump. congressman anthony wiener, p.j. crowley. former libyan ambassador, general richard myers. we begin tonight with cnn's ni k robertson live from tripoli. did anyone see the speech where you are? >> reporter: no one will have seen it on state television and there's been no comment on state television about it. they have chosen to broadcast a number of other things, reruns of political analysts putting forth the government position. but plenty of people you can be sure will have watched it on channels like cnn. they watch the international news organizations here, particularly anyone in the opposition because they don't trust the state media here because they don't get the full picture. but it's the middle of the night here so we really don't have reaction from anyone at the moment. certainly you can count on the fact that gadhafi will feel that he's dodged the bull
tour. it seems as if he doesn't think america last -- has the moral authority to be the leader. so the u.n. moves forward and hillary and other members of the administration. france, ever think we would be following the french? france and great britain move forward. then he's forced into doing something he doesn't want to do. >> this is serious business. we are at war. war is about -- >> sean: no, this is a kinetic military action. >> yeah. kinetic scope limited man caused disaster. the point about it is that war is about will. you've got to know what the end game is. you not to know your war aims. multi-lateral war mongering saps at will. this feels like that business in 1991 where we had the world's most perfect multi-lateral coalition at the end saddam hussein was still in power, regarded as the guy who stood up to the great satan and still standing in the end. if gadhafi is still in power in a month this communicates nothing other than american weakness. >> sean: a i agree. how could this be about winning when he said last night, america's role is limited. we are own on the fro
address on saturday. here's what he said in south america last week about why we're there. >> our military action is in support of an international mandate from the security council that specifically focuses on the humanitarian threat posed by colonel gadhafi to his people. now, i also have stated that it is u.s. policy that gadhafi needs to go. and we've got a wide range of tools in addition to our military efforts to support that policy. >> what does he need to say tonight? >> he hasn't addressed the american people and done it in a sort of logical way to explain why the it's in the u.s. interest, and particularly with secretary gates saying it's not a vital interest of the united states. how does this differ? i don't think he's going to address this tonight. i think he wants to be deliberately ambiguous about this. but why is this in the united states interest to protect civilians, the humanitarian mission and not what's happening in syria, to protesters. why it's not in our interest to protect the protesters in yemen or in bahrain. so that case has not been made. and i don't think he's
. if the government took over the health care system, america as we know it, as i was given it, as my grandfather who came to this country that place would no longer exists. so i just went out and started talking and working on campaigns and talking to people around the country and trying to stir people up and provide a message and a lot of feedback. you should think about doing this again, running for something. i kept walking down the path. i found out, by the way, when i went to iowa we had been in 21 states but when i went to iowa c-span actually covered my speech. other folks started paying attention. they said, "oh you are running for president." i said, "no, i'm just visiting the states." i kept going back to iowa and then new hampshire and south carolina because, every time i did, i got covered. i wanted to be heard. when i did that, was encouraged by people in those states to start thinking about it and that is sort of how this all happened. it was really by accident. >> you were quick to point out you are not a tea party guy. >> i love the tea party but i will not claim the mantle. tea part
latin america, the economy, he may take one question and have a brief statement but it's the balancing act, why he is no latin america. but obviously acknowledging the major news in libya. >> well, one question's going to one heck of an answer. because i want to know, a lot of people want to know what are we doing in libya? are we going in there to kill gadhafi? if not, what is the plan for gadhafi? what is he to do? if you were gadhafi what would you do? we're going in there with a so-called no-fly zone but limited potential for fire power. going after his command and control center, which is basically him. what is he to do? are we offering him an escape out of country? what end game are we forcing him to. i wish i knew this. war is politics by other means what are the politics of this war? certainly in the short run it's to protect lives of people who would be killed in a slaughter of civil yaians an in benghazi. i hope the american people keep asking that, what are we trying to accomplish here. the news reporting has been unsatisfactory in that regard. i don't know if you are even a
. hat's off to you. "america live" starts right now. megyn: welcome, everyone. fox news alert on libya. hi. i'm megyn kelly. in a news briefing moments ago, a top u.s. general saying that a stalemate with moammar qaddafi could be a possible outcome here. the stalemate could allow qaddafi to stay in power, that coming in as fox is learning that libya used reporters as human shields to head off a planned missile attack on a qaddafi compound. we'll have a live report from the ground in libya in a few moments. another alert, meantime, on the fallout over japan's nuclear crisis. we're getting word that nuclear officials here in the united states are launching new inspections and reviews of our own nuclear reactors in an effort to prevent a similar disaster. a new setback in efforts to prevent a nuclear meltdown in japan. workers at fukushima evacuated after smoke was seen rising from at least one of the damaged reactors. efforts to cool down overheating fuel rods are temporarily put on hold. trace gallagher has more live from our west coast newsroom. trace? >> reporter: this is a dangerous
off the "good morning america" set and here's his dressing room. we'll have the inside story of what really happened backstage. >>> from the global resources of abc news, with terry moran, cynthia mcfadden and bill weir in tnew york city, this is "nightline," march 22nd, 2011. >> good evening, i'm bill weir. sure, america has a dozen countries now helping attack moammar gadhafi, and yes, president obama promised to execute a quote, exit strategy this week. but none of that could have mattered to a pair of young americans the moment they ditched their f-15 and rode parachutes into the dark desert. for the latest on the closest of calls in this young war, we turn to the only reporter ever to fly a u.s. combat mission. martha raddatz has tonight's "target libya" report. >> reporter: late last night, the two-man crew of the f-15 strike eagle took off from aviano air base. their mission? take out deadly air defenses in libya. this is what flying in one of those 40-ton, $60 million fighter jets is like, as i learned when i flew a combat mission in an identical plan in afghanistan last year
this a humanitarian crisis. welcome to "bbc world news," broadcast on pbs in america and elsewhere around the world. my name is mike embley. another day of rage in yemen, but the president tells the u.s. to stop interfering. and he is known for shaquita andino -- shocking o on the catwalk, but dior has fired john galliano. hello again. in libya, colonel gaddafi is making efforts to shore up areas around capital of tripoli. u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton is warning that the country could go into a protracted civil war. jeremy bowen says that gaddafi says there are no demonstrations against him, and jeremy has a different account of how peaceful the city is. >> colonel gaddafi supporters were in the town to wave off the convoy. they say his authority will be restored. >> forever. forever. >> the regime's power is concentrated in the capital. colonel gaddafi has genuine support here, but there are protesters in tripoli, too. this is the center of the city, and green square. authorities say the foreign media has not been showing signs like these because they are wrongly portrayed in libya as c
thought it was a good idea. >> america cannot use the military wherever repression occurs. given the costs and risks, we must measure our interests against the need for action. but that cannot be an argument for never acting. on behalf of what's right. in this particular country, libya at this particular moment, we were faced with the prospect on a horrific scale. they had a unique ability to stop the violence and a mandate for action. a brought coalition prepared to join us. the support of arab countries and a plea for help from the libyan people themselves. we also have the title stop gadhafi's forces in their tracks without putting american troops on the ground. america's responsibility has a leader and more profoundly our responsibilities to fellow human beings under such circumstances would have been a detrayal of who we are. some nations may be able to turn a blind eye to atrocities in other countries. the us of america is different. >> the united states of america is different. he is being very careful to talk about this particular country. this particular moment. then describing ve
in here. >> he named this as an important strategic interest of the united states and as being in america's national interest. but the things that he described as proving that were potential flood of refugees in the middle east, the democratic impulses on view in the middle east with the various revolutions and uprisings being quenched by this brutal dictator, and un credibility, speaking for the international community and stepping up in cases like this. that is the sort of thing, you could make that case about america having a strong national strategic interest for any number of other conflicts or potential conflicts that we could get ourselves embraid in in the region or in any other region. what he defined tonight was why libya and not syria, why libya and not yemen, why not the other places where there are bad things going on that could cause a flood of refugees. and he essentially said because it could be done in libya. the united states had an opportunity. >> this is located in between egypt and tunesia. he was very specific about the problem being the flood of refugees, over those
and declining america and a declining europe. how do you make money and create jobs? it is a complicated and scary place. it is more creative and i will do it for clients and the more honest than a where do you live? >> i live in germany will have my head office. the dutch government is one of my clients. >> why would somebody hire you? >> i have a unique background. i have been educated in europe. i understand europeans. i lived and worked in washington. i'm a member of the council on foreign relations and i work for the center for strategic international studies. i worked at the heritage foundation on the right and the council is in the middle. i know the points of view of the schools of thought in washington. >> were was, originally? >> ohio, and a good ohioan, a place called rocky river. >> why the cato institute? >> why the cato institute? >> they let the politics fall where they fall. they have been deeply unfashionable. they say we have to have a foreign policy within our means. eisenhower is my favorite modern president. it would ruin our domestic equilibrium, we will not be a gr
seemed possibly to be the admission by president obama that america would now be actively henning these rebels and presumably arming them in the process. what did you make of that development in this story? >> reporter: if that's the way this is going to take shape over the coming weeks and months, it's clearly going to be a very protracted affair, because the opposition really isn't in a place to face off against gadhafi's army, even if you neutralize the army, their heavy weapons, their superiority, and advantage on the battlefield, what would seem to be serving -- gadhafi's armed the tribes loyal to him so you see people with more weapons on gadhafi's side and will use them against the rebels. this will turn to a wider civil war where even gadhafi can't predict what's going to happen. if the united states and others are going to arm the rebels, he's going to have to keep the pressure up on the rebels and he's going to have to arm the population that will support him. those oil installations that the rebels have just taken over the last few days piers. >> nic robertson, i want t
states engaged civil society, universities, think tanks and the know how that america has to the region, but not impose a form or model of the egyptians. they do not want to be to hanging over the fact that they will not deal with the egyptian government as members of the muslim brotherhood on it. the muslim brotherhood is no different than the all but -- ultraorthodox party in israel and christian democrats. they can be political parties that drive the base for religion but play with in the secular roles of the game. they do not want to see this type of western and physician saying if they win a certain number of seats, we will not deal with them. in that kind of tone is what the egyptians want to see. >> do you have a sense now that the egyptian process is really .eginning to firm -- forme >> i think the muslim brotherhood was completely surprised. never were the slogans chanted. not by accident, and more and partly because the people were not part of the muslim brotherhood. they were people that belong to the muslim brotherhood, but this was not a muslim brotherhood evened. it will n
what it is like to live in the new world, declining america, declining europe. how do you make money and create jobs? it is a very complicated, scary place. bhay did is what they did in bhay did is what they did in washington. but it's more creative and you can do it actually for clients and be a little bit more honest about it. brian: where do you live? >> i spend most of my time living in germany. one of my clients is the dutch government. i spend time in the hague as well but most of the time in germany. brian: why would someone hire you? >> i have a unique background. educated in the u.k., so i understand europeans but i lived and worked in washington. i worked for the heritage foundation on the right and the council is in the middle so i know the points of view of every major school of thought in washington so that's a good reason to hire me. brian: where was home originally? >> ohio. a place called rocky river about an hour from cleveland. i had an idyllic, eisenhower childhood it was lovely. i go back to that, pocketbook issues are what matter to a lot of people. and in foreig
health association, the american thoracic society, the asthma and allergy foundation of america, the physicians for social responsibility, the trust for america's health, this is what they say about the mcconnell amendment. "the mcconnell amendment would strip away sensible clean air act protections that safeguard americans and their families from air pollution." who do we stand with? this is the question we all ask in our campaigns. who's side are you on? who do you stand with? so i've made a decision. a strong one. i'm going to stand with the kids. i'm going to stand with our families. i'm going to stand with these leaders who are working day and night just to protect our health. i'm not going to stand with a right-wing ideological amendment. i'm not going to stand with amendments that are mcconnel mcl light. because if it isn't broken, don't fix it. the e.p.a. -- no agency is perfect, we know that. the e.p.a. is not perfect. but the record is clear, the actions by the e.p.a., along with local and state officials have saved countless lives. and if we leave our hands off of it,
of major operations to nato. >> i said america's role would be limited and we would not put ground troops into libya. we would focus our unique capabilities on the front end of the operation and transfer responsibility to our allies and partners. tonight, we are fulfilling that pledge. >> allied strikes on libya continue. the rebels he -- meet heavy resistance but pledged to continue their advance westward. >> i will hold gaddafi and kill him. >> fist fighting in the western city upper -- of misrata. we are broadcasting to our viewers in p.b.s. in america, and around the world. japan's prime minister declares a state of maximum alert over the crisis at the fukushima nuclear plant. president obama has made his first formal speech on the military campaign in libya. the address in washington came amid some criticism in the united states that the president has yet to explain what the goals of military action are and how long the military action will last. he responded by saying that a failure to act would have carried a far greater price for both american and libya. but he made clear military
states of america. and if the european allies and nato cannot manage to pursue this with the same intensity that they have exhibited over the last week, they are likely to call upon the united states to do more and the u.s. will remain part of the coalition. i think that's part of the complexity of this and the contradictions inherit in his policy that the president will have to address this evening. >> nick and david, back with us in a few minutes. how has the coalition military campaign changed the balance of power on the ground in libya? i want to go to the map and look at this. the president does not like the term war when it comes to this. is this a war? is the united states at war? >> well, you talk about war and i think you talk about world war one and i would not use the term "war." the guy on the ground getting shot at, it's like war. >> the president of the united states addresses the american people tonight. i want to close the map and go back here to march 18th. let me close this one down today. this is march 18th. this is the day before it all started. and here's -- y
but apologize for america, literally since he's been in office. now he's in a position where he has to be the commander in chief and it is just beyond him. he did the same in his speech at west point when he announced the surge less than what general petraeus asked for and announce add end date this summer this is the same problem. if you try to please everyone, you will end up pleasing no one. >> sean: this is a problem. if the center of gravity, in other words in terms of world leadership, is now because of america's failure or america gives it up, and is now shifted to europe, if they now make those decisions if the president doesn't go to congress, there are angry liberal congressmen about this, but goes to the united nations and he basically uses them as his justification, and doesn't seem to have the real commitment, it seems he doesn't really believe that america's place in the world ought to be one of moral leadership. fundamentally, what message does that send the world? >> think of what he said today. he basically said today, i'm paraphrasing, he says, if there's a people
that america is heavily involved but doesn't really want anyone to know that. which seems to be a rather pointless exercise in terms of the p.r. here, isn't it? >> no someone pretending that america is not involved. the announcement of the strategy indicated that we've been providing capability that we are uniquely qualified to provide. but as the days go by, more and more sorties will be carried out by air forces of other countries, more operations will be taken over, our role will become somewhat diminished. still engaged, still involved. obviously, helping to coordinate, but i think that's the transition we're watching. >> it's a very unusual position for american military to find itself in here. no one talking to all the generals in the last few days has really been clear what the mission is to start with. we hear it's costing america a billion dollars on air strikes, which the country can really hardly afford. i mean, isn't it time for some real clarity? and dare i say it, leadership here? >> well, i have to disagree with you there. i think the mission is quite clear. and what the p
by america or the atlantic pact until think in blood. they know they will be entering hell and in a bath of blood. >> the new bloodshed brought fresh calls for the united states to impose a no-fly zone. on capitol hill this clear explanation from the defense secretary robert gates. >> there's a lot of frankly loose talk about some of these military options and let's just call a spade a spade. a no-fly zone begins within attack on libya to destroy the air defenses. that's the way you do a no-fly zone. >> a closer look at the map and talk more and more about those options and the risks of using u.s. military force in libya in a moment and take a close look at those air defense systems secretary gates just said there would have to be targeted before there could be any no-fly zone. first the latest on what right now on the ground if you look at the map amounts to a civil war playing out in libya. a tense and brutal civil war. these image, the green area controlled by opposition forces. opponents of moammar gadhafi. the red areas controlled by the gadhafi regime. if you had any doubt gadhafi
therefore, the main task of latin america is to recover the lost time and tap all of its potential. we have lots of things in common with the u.s., fast, generous territory, homogeneous people, hardworking people. we don't have racial problems that affect some african countries or the wars that are waged in europe nor the religious conflict of europe itself. and therefore latin america is called to compromise or rather commitment with its own fate. and therefore we are looking forward to president obama's words. we are all left-handed. we have many coincidences. we studied in harvard, both of us. we are sportsmen. president obama continues to be a basketball player. i was in my time as well. i think the first lady of the u.s. is very good-looking, and president obama has said the same thing about the first lady of chile. there are plenty of 0 coincidences. but the most important one is the one we'll find this afternoon, and modestly if i could suggest to president obama, we hope to have a partnership that is two -- one where we have all responsibilities and not existentialism becau
the obvious. america has to get its fiscal house in order. how we got here is debated but certain things are indisputable. we have two wars that have been paid for on the credit card. we had tax cuts that went to the high income americans that are on the credit card. we recently extended them at the cost of $700 billion to the deficit. we had irresponsible behavior on the part of wall street that required rescuing the financial system in america so that main street could fight and survive another day. and then that led to a collapse in the economy and 10% unemployment that required governmental action in order to try to stabilize the economy. we have a long way to go in restoring the economy, but that has to be our first mission. the republican proposal on how to address this budget in these continuing resolutions will fail. the reason it will fail is because it fails to do what must obviously be done if we're going to have long-term fiscal stability and that is put everything on the table. the cuts that are proposed by the republican majority, unwise as they are, cannot do the job. the
